Principal’s Message 09/22/14

Good afternoon Cougar Families – This is Mrs. Weddle, Principal of your Wake Forest Middle School with a few announcements.

Thank you to all who attended our PTSA Open House.  Please don’t forget about the online survey which is available on our website. Continue to support your kids in fundraising activities for our PTSA. 

On Wednesday, we will begin our 7th grade move.  Students were selected to switch teams based upon how many classes in their schedule were overcrowded.  Instead of moving 50 students from the two teams we are moving about 20 students who were in multiple overcrowded classrooms.  While I know no one likes change, this is being done to improve student outcomes.   We have no other options.  We welcome Mr. Hoyle who joins us as a 7th grade Social Studies Teacher on the Gryffon team tomorrow.  I am excited about this combination of teachers and can’t wait to see all the innovative ideas they bring to excite student learning.

Sixth grade parents, we are going to wait until we have a teacher in place to move students.  Also, 6th grade parents, don’t forget that TDAP documentation is due on September 25th.  If we do not have TDAP documentation or the medical/religious exemption waiver, you should have received a personal voicemail earlier today.

Fall sports begin for us tomorrow with our girls’ volleyball and soccer teams taking on the Dolphins of Durant.  Our mighty Cougar Football team plays at Durant on Wednesday.  Show your Cougar Pride by supporting our athletic teams in their opening games.  5th quarter begins at 3:45.

Thursday is a teacher workday so no students should attend.  Friday is a regular school day and all students should attend. 

As always these messages will appear on our website.  Please do not hesitate to contact us at (919) 554-8440 if you have any questions.

Important News about Transportation

Transportation Blog

Parents, 

 

WCPSS will not provide buses to daycares or after school clubs such as the Boys and Girls Club for afternoon routes. Although this has been done in the past, WCPSS has recently changed their practices in order to provide better service to students who are currently eligible for transportation.  Eligible students are provided transportation services to and from their residence, not before or after school care locations.  Again, no buses will leave Wake Forest Middle School in the afternoons and go to the Boys and Girls Club or any other non-residence location.  Parents can apply for alternate bus stops but these will NOT be considered until after the first 30 days of school.  

 

All requests for a stop other than the primary residence has to go through the school district's site at http://www.wcpss.net/parents/transportation/. School personnel is to direct all phone calls regarding transportation to the (919) 805-3030 phone number.  

This new system is in place to better provide for the students who had existing transportation (home to home).  Traditional schedule routes and stop times are posted to the website beginning Monday August 18th.  Please note there are many stop changes this year.  Parents must check their stops and not assume they will be the same as last year.  The changes were made to improve efficiency and delivery times.

Latest Transportation Information 8/12/14

New bus routes available for traditional calendar schools on August 18

New bus routes for the 2014-15 school year will be available online August 18 for WCPSS traditional calendar schools. The bus routes will be shared athttp://www.wcpss.net/parents/transportation/routes-and-stops.html the week before the new school year begins.

Families should check the bus routes to find the stop closest to their address. Each year, bus stops change based on the students who ride the route. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.

New practices
This school year for the first time, WCPSS Transportation has a team of routing specialists who will work to provide eligible riders safe and timely bus service.

They will base routes on families who used bus service last year or families who signed up to ride the bus for 2014-15. In the past, transportation plans assumed all students would ride the bus. Of the 153,000 students last year, 76,000 were bus riders.

Beginning the planning process with accurate ridership will help Transportation planners provide superior bus routing. This should provide families better bus service from the start of the school year. Routes for known riders will be set for the first day of school. Bus drivers will practice set routes to be ready for the first day of school. With superior routing, buses will travel less distance saving money on fuel and maintenance.

Alternate stops
Students eligible for bus service are assigned a stop this school year based on their home address of record. If families need an alternate stop for before- or after-school care, they may request that online at www.wcpss.net/busrequest.

Transportation will evaluate these requests to determine if the alternate stop fits on an existing bus route and that space is available on the bus to accommodate the student. WCPSS does not add bus stops during the first 30 days of school.

Students who were approved as voluntary transfers for 2013-14 and received transportation for the year may apply online to seek bus service for 2014-15. The request will be reviewed to determine if it falls on the existing route of a bus with available space and does not significantly affect other students’ ride time.

Special needs students
Families of children who are homeless, have Individual Education Plans (IEPs), or have plans under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (504) may need to request special transportation, as they move into the community or change address. These families will need to enroll their child in the new school or notify their current school of the address change and inform school staff of their child’s IEP, 504 plan or homeless status. Students will be assigned to transportation.

After the first 30 days of school, bus drivers will monitor ridership. Transportation will drop the bus stop for students who do not use the bus for 10 consecutive school days. Families only need to apply for students to receive service again.

The goal of this practice is to improve the service for those that consistently ride the bus.

Transportation information for students with alternative stops

Families can apply online for alternate bus stops

 

Families can now apply using a new online form, if they need an alternate school bus stop for before- or after-school care.

 

The online form is at http://www.wcpss.net/parents/transportation/change-bus-stop/

 

Students eligible for bus service have been assigned a stop this school year based on their home address of record. Once these routes are established, Transportation will evaluate alternate stop requests for before or after school care to determine if the requested stop fits on an existing bus route and if space is available on the bus to accommodate the student. WCPSS does not add bus stops during the first 30 days of school.

 

Students who were approved as voluntary transfers for 2013-14 and received transportation for the year may apply on this new online form to seek bus service for 2014-15. This request for service for an ineligible student will be reviewed to determine if it falls on the existing route of a bus with available space and does not significantly affect other students’ ride time. These types of requests will not be processed during the first 30 days of school as bus service for eligible students is still being established.

 

Improving bus service

This school year for the first time, WCPSS Transportation has a team of routing specialists who will work to provide eligible riders safe and timely bus service.
